Have mainly been testing my new 716, but for comparison, I wrote a disk using my 712 fw 1.05. (TLA 0202, sn :314xxx)
All tested media are TY +R 8x Fuji (MIJ) MID= Yuden000 T02
Here are a few scans burned by the 712 :
The unusual about this scans are the relative low PIE's but the present of quite some POF's !
Also strange is that in the reading transfer graph, neither the my Plex712 (red),
the Philips 1640(green) or the my 716 report any errors, : only the NEC3500 (blue) slows down as reaching 16x. If you look closely, you'll see that both the red (Plextor 716) and the green (Philips) are going smooth to the max,
I did a SUM8 on all disks using Plextools 219a and my 3 Plextor DVD writers : 1x 716 and 2x 712. The result was #POF =0 for all disks on all 3 Plextors !
The media seem OK as my Benq produces excelent burns.
Is this 712 wearing out already ?
